I was just looking through the top rated restaurants in Koh Tao, looking at where to eat tonight, and I was shocked to see this place in the top 5… It 100% does not deserve to be there.
On the only night that I visited there was only our group in there (around 8 people) and the waiter was clearly out of his depth with only us! It was like his first night working… apparently he was one of the owners. He was also rude and didn't know the menu and kept having to go to the kitchen to ask questions.
I ordered the steak and received a small gristly piece of meet that was not the quality piece of meet that it was claiming to be. It was also massively over cooked despite me asking for medium rare.
3 of my friends ordered the lasagne, but were told there was only enough for 2 people. Thinking that there might be some way round this asked again and the waiter then reluctantly took an order for 3. We all thought that perhaps one would have to be made fresh and thats why he was reluctant to take an order for 3. This was not the case, it became apparent when the lasagne came that all they had done was take the already small portion for 2 people and split it between 3 but still charged for 3. It was the smallest piece of lasagne I have ever seen! The price of the whole experience was not cheap either. I'd never go back to this place unless someone else was to be paying and would guarantee to me that if it was as bad as this experience, that they would then pay for us to go eat somewhere else.
We were going to have desert too, but after the bad experience of the main course we decided to leave. As we walked out, we all noted that we had been the only people in the restaurant all night and that we didn't think that the restaurant would be around for long. I can only assume that the owner has a lot of friends who he likes to ask to review the restaurant with 5 stars and that people are then duped into coming back time after time. This is a 1/5 restaurant for food but the setting makes it a 2/5.
But don't be fooled, there are so many better places to eat in Koh Tao than here, so ignore the rating.
